This ‘low light tolerated’ plant is easy to care for, beautiful, and easy to propagate! Mine was getting a little leggy so I chopped and propped in water and I have new growth on the stems left behind and roots growing on the cuttings. This stunning plant is GREAT for beginners and it’s so fun to look at! 😉

* This plant currently sits in a west-facing room under a cheap grow light. I water it sometimes. *

I have not been able to find this plants happy place. When I got it, I assumed it would be like all of my other Aglaonema or Chinese evergreens... it isn't. I've had this plant for a few years and it was getting very leggy. I've struggled to find the balance between waterings.

You should see this poor plant now; it looks so bad! It has lost the majority of its leaves on top and then the stems broke in half. I put the stems back in the pot and they are now starting to sprout new leaves. Perhaps, once we get out of 2021, this plant might turn around!

Leaves were browning so I started using filtered water. No more browning leaves.
